Student Ratings

College Life Rating

College life at Michigan Tech is unparalleled. Instead of dreading snow, students at MTU can't wait for it. Each year school is closed for the 4 day Winter Carnival. Some carnival events are building huge snow sculptures, broom-ball, beard contests, ice fishing, skating, curling, and occasionally setting snow related world records. Outside of Carnival, students also have season passes to the local ski hill and access to miles of ski trails. During the warm months, students can do anything from mountain biking, rock climbing, camping, golfing, or going to the beach. Even though Houghton and Hancock are established cities, they are surrounded by wilderness, which is a huge benefit if you love nature. Sports at Michigan Tech is mainly inter-mural except for Hockey. MTU is also a smaller school, so if you want to play sports (even if you aren't that great), it is really easy to find a team. There are also plenty of student organizations, I actually got connected with one the few days I was there. My tour guide who graduated from my high school invited me to her youth group meeting and I met some cool people.
